Title: G-equivariant factorization algebras (Cancelled; Weather)
Speaker: Laura Wells
Speaker Info: University of Notre Dame
Brief Description:
Special Note:

Factorization algebras are a mathematical tool used to encode the data of the observables of a field theory. There are various notions of factorization algebra: one can define a factorization algebra on the open subsets of some fixed manifold; or alternatively, one can define a factorization algebra on the site of all manifolds of a given dimension with a specified geometric structure. In this talk I will outline a comparison between two such notions: G-equivariant factorization algebras on a fixed model space M and factorization algebras on the site of all manifolds equipped with a geometric structure locally given by M and G. I will introduce the definitions of these two concepts and then sketch the proof of their equivalence.
